Education and Literacy

Programs


The NFRW Literacy Committee strives to sponsor and support a variety of programs, and we hope there is at least one to fit each Federated Republican women's club, regardless of size or location. We sincerely believe in our motto – Readers Become Leaders.

Please contact any member of the NFRW Literacy Committee for additional information.

  OUR COMMITMENT TO LITERACY

  BARBARA BUSH LITERACY PROGRAM - LITERACY MONTH

Each September, Republican women's clubs across the nation are asked to let us know what they do to promote literacy. All clubs returning the short literacy month form receive a signed certificate of participation and are entered in a random drawing for first and second prizes.

  WHAT REPUBLICAN WOMEN OFFICIALS READ

With the challenges facing our nation and the blossoming of Republican women in elected office and leadership positions, it is the perfect time to highlight what Republican women officials are reading to draw inspiration from their book choices and "smart power leadership" that motivates and empowers.

With the belief that Readers Become Leaders, the NFRW Literacy Committee is launching this exciting new project. A list is undergoing compilation, and each month, a book will be selected and featured here and also will include the Republican woman official associated with the selection. Check in for updates.

  THE DICTIONARY PROJECT

Since adopting this popular project in 2002, the NFRW and its clubs and members have given more than 300,000 dictionaries to school children. For more information on how your club can get involved, visit www.dictionaryproject.org.

  THE LAURA BUSH FOUNDATION FOR AMERICA'S LIBRARIES

The Laura Bush Foundation for America's Libraries created the Gulf Coast School Library Recovery Initiative to rebuild school libraries in the hurricane devastated Gulf Coast. As soon as it was announced, the NFRW Literacy Committee endorsed it and encouraged members to become involved. Since then, Mrs. Bush has expanded the mission to encourage support for all of America’s libraries.
